G'day all,

Anyone any suggestions where I can get young creeping raspberry plants? Local garden centre has them but are 2 each and I need 150😰

Also anyone got any experience of these plants? I need them to cover a slope so need low maintance evergreen with interest via flower and berry for butterfly and birds.

Thanks

Are these like Japanese wineberry? My dad grew those and they are very vigorous - spread like crazy!

Yes they seem to be the same/related. Good to know they spread like mad as that is exactly what I need for this slope.

You might not need as many as you think.

Good point. If I can get away with less I'd be happy to save the money.

Is it raspberry or bramble your looking for, if its the latter Bramble then your looking for Rubus tricolor for covering a bank and not for the fruit but it can be eaten. That should be fairly cheap to buy from a nursery. i see Rubus Betty ashburner is available from Yellow Furz nursery.
